Nursing Homes Easing Restrictions

(Indianapolis, IN) - Nursing homes should become more visitor friendly.  This week, state officials announced a rollback of the lockdown protocols that have been in place in long-term care facilities.


On Wednesday, State Health Commissioner Dr. Kris Box said nursing homes will now be required to offer indoor visitation, as long as they haven’t had a positive COVID case in the past 14 days.  They are also increasing the amount of time allowed for visits. 


And Dr. Box announced that long-term care residents can leave their facilities for up to 24 hours without having to quarantine upon returning.
